So I am attempting a flat iron for the 5th time in my whole life , lol. In the past I have always gotten semi poofy results and I am thinking using too much heat protection is the culprit. I have a blow dry cream that does well for me and it provides heat protection up to 450 degrees. I also have a serum. I am wondering if I need to use both when blow drying and flat ironing? I have very fine stands and I am very worried about heat damage. Using two gives me piece of mind that while flat ironing at 360 degrees that I am not burning my hair. Help?
